Question about Heating & Cooling
The condensate drain line is probably clogged.
Find out where the pipe exits the home, and attatch a wet/dry shop vack to the end of the drain line, close it up around the pipe as much as possible and trun it on.
These typically get clogged with dust, dirt, pet hair, mold etc.
They usually clog at the elbows, P-traps and the inlet coming from the drain pan. There is an internal drain pan in the unit that catches the condensation. When the line clogs the pan overflows and you have water dripping from the unit.
There is also a small chace the pan has a hole in it, but thats fairly rare. There is also a chjance that if the unit is not level the water will overflow the pan before it can drain. (most pans are only 1 to 2 inches deep.) Make sure the unit is level or veryslightly lower toward the drain side.
